Challenge: Use Attribute Selectors to Style Elements

Link to the challenge:

Hi @johnboscoodo and welcome here,

You a little mixed the concepts. The example gave by the course is for CSS, so it would be placed within the style block for the CSS rules:

  [type='radio'] {
    margin: 20px 0px 20px 0px;

You used this syntax directly into your tags in the HTML, which is not correct. Example:

<label><input [type='checkboxes'] { margin: 10px 0px 15px 0px; } name="personality" checked> 

Reset the code to restart from a clean version, and work on the style tag. Hope it helps!
